• News from the (current) front

    Last week one of the new release from Rubicon arrived at my doorstep. The „SdKfz 251/1 Ausf C“ is one of the cheaper models (~20€ per kit) that has only a limited amount of options (and therefor being cheaper I guess). The kit itself consists of two sprues, a decal sheet and a leaflet which […]

  • Rackham spree (or „single model spree“)

    Rackham came to me thanks to Michael Bartels from Painting Buddha. Before this it went completly under my radar during my tabletop free time. Missed the rise, missed the fall but was happily able to pick up some of the spoils at the end. Some of those are the superbly brilliant goblin models available. They […]

  • 2 years and nothing done?

    It has been over two years since a new posting was done in this blog. Actually I was quite shocked when I checked this week that it was really that long. It almost looks like I abandoned the hobby and went on another hiatus. Far from the truth… I just did not document or photograph […]

  • Flood of the lend lease tanks

    Getting ready for a tournament this saturday a lot of lend-lease tanks needed some colour. M3 Lees and Valentines (each ten tanks strong) were waiting for assembly and some colour. I tried to move a away from the standard green w/o any distinction to make them a little bit more colourful and „russian“. Highlighting was […]

Deployment Points for Sharpe Practise (2)

Richard over at TooFatLardies did a competion to create some deployment points for the recently recent second version of Sharpe’s Practise. Because deadlines can be (at least sometimes) motivating to finish something on time and not just switch over to another project this sounded like the a good plan. I plan to use the rule […]

Russian SU-122 in alternate winter camouflage

After several platoons in the same faded winter camouflage something different had to be done. Based on the „Soviet War Colors“ book by AK Interactive a test platoon of S-122 AFVs was done to see if the camouflage would be doable for me in 15mm. The winter white was added as a camouflage pattern and […]

More Neo Soviet loving

After I settled upon a paint scheme for the Neo Soviets getting more stuff done was actually a quick an fun task. Today on the painting table: Ral Partha Ga’Nesh Heavy Suits and a tracked remote drone from Rebel Miniatures. Basing for the infantry is not done yet (colour missing) and I am unsure if […]

Soviet Group

Alive and well (with Gruntz)…

Things learned in the last couple of month: never underestimate your hobby when moving. So many boxes of stuff were packed in a hurry so sorting it out again took way too long… In the meantime some minor projects got started and a Massive Voodoo painting class was a present to me for being such […]

Long time no posting… Captured SdKfZs 251 as an appetizer

Moving is a bitch… Especially if you are moving and try to sort and order your tabletop stuff which grew a little bit out of proportion and order for two years in a row. So after renovations to the new apartment, moving all the stuff and trying to organize your new hobby room it is […]
